親愛的長腿叔叔:

 

    我加入了籃球隊,你真該看看我左肩上的一大塊擦傷,又青又紫還有赤黃色的劃痕。朱麗雅˙彭德爾頓報了名,沒有錄取。萬歲!

 

    你瞧,我心胸多狹窄!

 

    大學越來越可愛了,我喜歡那些女孩子,喜歡老師,喜歡課程,喜歡校園,喜歡那些好吃的東西。每週吃兩次冰淇淋,從不吃玉米粥。

 

     每個月你只要我寫一封信,是嗎?可是我的信卻像雪片一樣向你飛去!新事物使我如些興奮,我要向人傾訴,而你是我的唯一熟人。原諒我的饒舌。不久我會安定下來。若是縑煩,就把信丟到垃圾桶裹好了。我保證十一月中旬前再不寫信了。

Dear Daddy-Long-Legs,

     I’ve made the basketball team and you ought to see the bruise on my left shoulder.  It’s blue and mahogany with little streaks of orange.  Julia Pendleton tried for the team, but she didn’t make it.  Hooray!

     You see what a mean disposition I have. 

     College gets nicer and nicer.  I like the girls and the teachers and the classes and the campus and the things to eat.  We have ice cream twice a week and we never have cornmeal mush.

     You only wanted to hear from me once a month, didn’t you?   And I’ve been peppering you with letters every few days! But I’ve been so excited about all these new adventures that I must talk to somebody; and you’re the only one I know.  Please excuse my exuberance; I’ll settle pretty soon.  If my letters bore you, you can always toss them into the wastebasket.  I promise not to write another till the middle of November.

 

Yours most loquaciously,

Judy Abbott
